A recycled giveaway from Talking Squid!


Taryn from Talking Squid believes that recycled products don’t have to look ‘recycled‘ and she makes goodies using 100% recycled t-shirts with a focus on color, design and functionality. Well, she had me at recycled without lookingΒ  ‘recycled‘…but, she is not kidding folks, her goods are a delight of design and just full of color. I’m really attracted to her fringe necklaces, the cute little blossom rings and those sweet clutches. And how about these shag rugs? To die for, right?

Now if drooling over her goods is not treat enough this Monday morning, Taryn is giving away a winner’s choice fringe necklace to one lucky Indie Fixx reader!

How to enter:

Head on over to the Talking Squid shop, drool over all the lovelies and then head on back over here to leave a comment(s) with your favorites products from the shop. One random commenter will be chosen to win their choice of one fringe necklace. You may leave multiple comments to increase your chances. This giveaway will end Friday, July 3rd at 11:59 am EST.
